WASHINGTON (AP) — Amtrak has announced it is extending free wireless internet to about a dozen East Coast routes, including the Northeast Regional trains running from Boston to Virginia.

The Wi-Fi service known as Amtrak Connect has already been available on Acela Express trains in the Northeast. The Washington Post reported the free wireless expansion Monday. It quoted Amtrak officials as saying the free wireless
internet will now be available for passengers on key routes from the Northeast to Georgia.

Amtrak estimates that nearly 60 percent of the train system’s riders will now have access to free Wi-Fi. Amtrak made free
wireless service available on its Acela Express trainings beginning last year and says it plans to add the free service to Amtrak trains in California by year’s end.
